About this website
lamiinae.org is present on Web for 19 years
Lamiaires du Monde, Lamiines of the World
The website focuses exclusively on Lamiinae also called lamiines or flat-faced longhorned beetles.
Lamiaires du Monde is the french name of the original version, and Lamiines of the World, its translation.
It is the result of the author's work over the past 27 years to build an IT solution, update the database, enrich the content of pages and improve the services provided.
Jean-Philippe Roguet, 63 years old, architect of information system and their IT solutions, living near Paris, interested in entomology for 47 years, the last 35 years dedicated to the group of flat-faced longhorned beetles.
At first I created the entomological database management system in 1996 to compile a comprehensive catalog of Lamiines. The graph theory inspired me algorithms to build the tree of the valid group combinations, to infer systematic catalog and faunistic catalogs from nomenclatural events and other information (e.g. localities) found in the bibliography.
Then I created the website in 2004 to share the results of this heavy work. Pages and services are based on some of tools developed to support my operational activities related to collection and bibliography, of course to search for information but also to prepare entomological expeditions, facilitate determination with bestiaries, implemented keys or even derived in regional subkeys.
To photograph and illustrate the website, I use Nikon D7500 on reproduction stand, AF Micro-Nikkor 60mm f / 2.8, Helicon software, Photoshop software and some PHP modules to generate and integrate the images.
My permanent concern is the continuous enrichment of the website to constitute a useful and pleasant reference for all the visitors.

For example, some representative websites on their perimeter :
- Bezbycids.com has a very useful gallery to determine the longhorned beetle
- BioLib provides an updated list of taxa very useful
- Cerambycoidea.com is also interesting for its forum, its gallery and its digital library
- Titan database gives bibliographical references of taxa and museums keeping the types
